The Indian cricket team has reportedly voiced their discontent with the current kit, sponsored by Nike, with some reports suggesting the kits were sub-standard. Their complaint has been duly noted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), who have taken the matter quite seriously.
Reports, however, had suggested that the National team players aren't too happy with the kits made available by Nike with the word 'sub-standard' making the headlines. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri confirmed the news and clarified that the BCCI would have a meeting with Nike to try and resolve the issue as soon as possible.
"It (Nike’s clothing) has come up for discussion in the last COA meeting and chairman CoA (Vinod Rai) took it very strongly. The team cannot have sub-standard kits and we will be engaging with Nike and he has asked to put our case strongly. We have to engage with them, we will have a meeting with them (Nike) next week and try to resolve it at earliest," Johri was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
